After the deaths of his parents, William Lemp, Jr. converted the family mansion into the corporate offices of the Lemp Brewing Co. When William Jr., committed suicide in 1922 his younger brother, Charles Lemp, made it his residence. Still wealthy from the familys brewing fortune, Charles traveled extensively during the 1930s and 40s, picking up lavish and unique furnishings from the art deco and post depression periods. This is reflected in the decor of Charles bedroom. The walls of this room are done in plum burgundy with hardwood floors and vintage light fixtures. The furnishings include a queen size bed, massive wardrobe, Icart prints and other antiques.Charles was the last member of the Lemp family to inhabit the mansion, committing suicide there in 1949.
